I renewed my domain name the other day and it hardly seems possible that it has been a year since I claimed “lizardhappy.com” as my own.
It certainly has been a year of change and challenges so far and as we say goodbye to October, suddenly Christmas and the end of the year seem very close.
Last November, and the year before that (I think), while lots of other bloggers were tackling the NaNoWriMo, I decided to hold a giveaway of my art, as a way to motivate and perhaps “pay it forward”, as without blogging and the many friends I have made (and one special one in particular) I would never have taken the first steps to rediscovering myself as an artist.
And this year I am going to do it again.
I would like to invite you all to share your creativity with me, show me your doodles, your craft, your napkin scribbles, your photos and your digital art. (even if it might be a little controversial)
And I will put your name into a draw for an original one of a kind piece of my art.
Art for art.
Simply email me, or post it on your blog and let me know where to find it by leaving a comment.
This is not a contest but a random draw and with your permission, I will share it here on Lizard Happy.
And for those of you lucky enough to already have some of my art, feel free to enter again, and if you send me a pic of my art in your house, you can have another entry.
Just to make it fair, if you don’t have my art, send me a pic of where you would put a painting of mine and I will enter you too.
I would love to build a page showing just where in the world my art is.
(We can keep it as simple as state or even country if you want to keep it private).
At this point, I am not sure if there will be more than one prize, that may depend on the interest from you guys.
Feel free to share the news, but it certainly isn’t a condition of entry.
I would also love to host anybody who feels like writing an art related guest post. It is always fun to play on somebody else’s blog.
Entries for the giveaway close on the 25th November with the winner/s announced by the end of the month.
1. make art
2. blog or take a photo
3. let me know about it and whether or not I can share it here (you will still be entered even if you are shy)
4. for a bonus entry, show me my art in your home or show me where you will put my art, while letting me know where in the world you are.
5. Think about doing a guest post here.
6. Feel free to share the word (not a condition of entry)
7. Have fun perhaps trying something new.
8. do all this before the 25th of November.
As for me, I am looking forward to a weekend of messing with my paints and a pumpkin. Plus the pencil drawing you see above needs to be traced onto a canvas ready for the next step – painting it.
One last thing, for my next post I wanted to ask you all a little something.
Imagine you have just arrived at Adelaide Airport on a holiday and with me as your personal tourguide, what sites would you like to see?
Let me know in the comments.
Friday tomorrow, can’t wait
